If you probably played Brood War, you must've played Oracle's AU custom campaign Legacy of the Confederation, and if you played, you probably LOVED it.
Though not as polished as the latest StarCraft campaigns, the ideas, scenarios and even some gameplay presented were pretty much good fun. It spawned good sequels, a spin-off, it even had a cutscene of it's own, nearly matching Blizzard quality. Don't believe me? Watch the playthrough of the original BW missions in Jayborino's channel.
But apart from that, despite being so well known and popular, we never got to see it end, the literal Episode III was never finished. There were, sure, plans to remake it on StarCraft II, but until Jayborino made the playthrough, even Oracle had given up when he saw the trouble it was making something like that again, now with all the issues the SCII editor had at the time. We really should thank Jayborino for that one, he resurrected our hopes for a new, more potentially greater LotC custom campaign, the first of it's time in ages.
But what if I told you that this is much more closer to completion than you actually believe? And that WE can give it a push to release?
Exactly, while we didn't get to follow it here, on SC2Mapster, LotC did move quite ahead, and I believe we're nearly close to seeing it, and playing it. That's because Oracle had been more focused on updating the Facebook page rather than in other sites, and I must admit he set some absurd view goals in order to see some demonstration videos.
Can't wait to see that campaign finally be released. Also I am loving those custom carriers. They look beautiful. :)

I, as sort of the unofficial spokesman of LotC to SC2Mapster, am glad to inform we hit the official 3.5k like mark needed for the gameplay video. It'll be sent to Jayborino, soon, where you'll get to see what you're gonna play with in a matter of months.
Yeah I was also hoping for something a little more dramatic like a mission or something with terrain so we can get a feel for the game. Empty desert makes it seem unpolished but some of the models are cool anyway good job
Yeah, truth be told, I was too expecting something a bit more, I won't lie. I mean, Oracle insisted we reached the 3.5k view mark so he'd release it, I thought I was going to see a mission sneak peek or even an alpha match against a casual computer, like UPL vs Zerg.
